The most wonderful thing happened recently! Yes! The Sue Atkins Book Club had it’s very own Book Fair! All us authors had a chance to present our books in a unique experience for us all. Hosted by Ian Gilbert of Independent Thinking, it was an invaluable opportunity to showcase our books, both for children and parents, and tell our own stories!
Some of us were a little nervous at the thought of a ‘live’ transmission, but Ian was the most engaging host and since his background is in education, he knows his stuff. He put us all at ease and made the whole experience a magical one for all of us. In fact Ian was a superhero that weekend hosting all the presentations back to back, for over 50 authors. Behind the scenes tech whizz and Super-Recording Ninja Nina Jackson was organising all the recordings, figuring out the real time and resolution, and taking screenshots of the highlights for us all! Amazing feat of technical engineering!
Featuring ‘Polymer Pixie’ and armed with a red wig and glasses, I enjoyed talking about my journey as an author and how the Pixie Van Dimple stories took shape.
